Illuc ascenderunt presents the most ancient repertoire of the gregorian chant, dating from the second half of the eight century. The chants of past-Whitsuntide, taken from the liturgy of the christian mass, are interwoven with saxophone-improvisations. Heinrich Rumphorst leads the Berliner Choralschola.
This puristic live-recording (with two omnidirectional microphones in an AB-setup and at a distance of 51.5 cm) was relocated to the cathedral Notre Dame de Chartres for sonic-aesthetic reasons.
